Hair and i want to welcome to my show. Welcome ladies thank you here right. Appreciate you guys all right. Who wants to go first. Tell me how did you guys get started. What was the. How did you guys birth this baby. Well at one right. It starts at central state university which is located in wilberforce ohio. Of course you know. One of the only one of only two hues in ohio right across the street from wilberforce with the private university. We all came together as freshmen in our love of hair fashion. Taking care as well as just bringing in our roots in our cultural raising you know those things that connected us Like the beauty shop in the tradition of black hair in those things. Were also a bonding moment on central state's campus as well as young girls coming in you know young women experiencing different things in life. It was always a place of comfort for us during those times of transgene and learning and growing. And it's we think it's still very relevant today. It sure is tell me something. I don't want you know i'm not gonna reveal ages but how far back was it was was natural in at that. Time was it You know the preston curls or the relaxed or thirty on rumps wrigley dayton. So what i can say is i came in. We were the city of the reps. You had to have a relaxer and a nice straight rat would a nice clean. It could be a bob or it could be long but we need to liaise sleek girl so relaxed creamy brat. Okay in cleveland. There were a lot of quick weeds in columbus. It was almost variety of a little bit of everybody. They were doing the weeds. The kiki twist the micro grade still but when we came in we were coming out of that transition. Everybody don't take so it was almost like a idea of everything. We were kind of coming away from relaxes as much variety of everything. I think it was because it was so many different people coming from everywhere right bone right okay. So you guys got together. We got a conversation. How did how did everything starts. As far as you. The idea who thought of it guys. This came together and say look. I could do this. I could do this. Why don't we just get together. Well i always. I always dibble dabbled in hair. I was told. But i went to central state so doing here on the side that organization managerial side and more were both business majors. Ryan won a set communications right right in communications august so i had the hair moines had the management ryan at the communication side of it in so we aren't getting off. Yeah i'm hustling hitter in the dorms. This thing ended up going from that to me moving into a house and moving house and we kind of turn that house into our salon slash ash beauty so having different majors in already having that background because right hand was doing i rouse and nails before the a jewelry can inside. We all kind of hand like that reckitt. Would you say line m makeup in makeup and so in the early days I actually handled more natural hair side. Were given the more of the The sculpted looks at the west is becoming like i said i was. I was from a city where we we worked more with. It wasn't completely natural because we'd be relaxers. Moving wanted a more natural. Look we would. We were more into roller rats. We were more into pink girl. You know what. I'm saying. Things like that gave me a nice what we call the baffling iron instead of flat iron here. You know what i'm saying. Things like that so devin. I will work in tandem in college to satisfy those needs to turned our house into a consult a total beauty parlor whereby if a girl didn't want a sculpted look but she might want just wrap this week. I will take care of that. And that way. We keep the clientele in rotation in our household or if we need eyebrows. You need to eyebrows done. You need your nails Design for the weekend. You need a similar set. We've got that for you. In fifteen dollars. That was a way for us to all become You know to keep kind of interest in in the middle of a cornfield you know in those days. Central state didn't have some of the amenities that they have now. They don't understand the blessing of that gas. It was literally grown. Yes they're only nc with a lot of like devon with at that time we had a lot of people from chicago. We had people from detroit we had girls from. Pcp we had girls Cleveland who were used to the next s ability in cleveland salons in their beauty stores so logo for that s ability in coming the coming to rule ohio. Where larger city here. Yeah so we were lucky enough to get a house that was directly across the street from kansas. Oh wow you can beat that you ll be that so with you to the hair lauren. What the the market was getting. The the clientele was bringing brennan lorrimore. The war was that everything or was the voice. long logistically. 'supplies was the equipment. Everything so did you guys become an actual business or was still. I mean you guys are still in school right doing this one school college students. So when did you guys decide to make it a full-fledged business license and everything or if you know around two thousand and four i was gonna say about two thousand for ash. Beauty the looseness business probably about two thousand and what about seven. Shortly after devin came home bevan came home from school. Do hair full-time. That's how that's how much her talent. Her natural talent and her business in here blew up. She went home her professional license In in two thousand fourteen and no seven from ohio state. When i went into the salon it was my first alarm. So we learned was getting our whole social media following together here. She's getting the media in the clientele bringing them to me. And that's kind of how we started and then by doing that. We got lauren. Hooked up with a lady out of the clear blue. Her name was bitty upchurch an she owned a we blew. Remember how it was on on on the the chat and then we met at the hair. the brothers hair show. Yeah no not bronner brothers. But it was down at the convention center cleveland. It was columbus. Okay yes. Lawrence had contact. Had you know talk to her on lie nan. Walk up to her booth. We introduced ourselves as as beauty lady was like collect talk to you. So that's why we ended up going from open salon. The sweet start really kinda took off because we had a space to have our own Mortar you could say because we're able to bring in net breakers jewelry neck regulatory started at how i long we had a hair show. We wanted in two thousand ten. So net breakage jewelry started there but it blew up by the time we had our own place understand. What okay so you did hair and you guys had a jewelry to yes. Wow so how did you worry. I'm sorry handmade jewelry right okay. We can't hear you ryan well. What kind of happened is is early on. We saw a vision for a total beauty supply company where devon could be talent in terms of doing hair and like i said i didn't have i have an ability but i don't have a passion for here i love the do you hear me. I love the look. No make Those fine details the compliment. Her artistry on someone's hair is what we decided to like co-partner on with lauren. As sort of working as our act is meant to give you know to give floor. And like i said early on and around the earth like mid-2000s. I was a around two thousand eight. Two thousand nine is when we came up with the idea like hey we can be as lamb squad is pretty much what we right right and not type of glam squad where we are like i was like i don't want to sell paparazzi jewelry. My mother handmade jewelry. I can hand make our accessories that we put on our models devin. You can hand make their week gigs. We don't have the pro anybody's lie right. We can do our own and we were all like absolutely we even early idea where we were even thinking about doing van. It was kind of you know those kinds of things that have come in. That are just kind of standard zoli thought. Okay so you guys will like the pay your own alright so talking about the actual hair stuff What were most requested type of style was a natural The braids or what time are you talking about in the game after you guys got together and got the business of doing so. There was a whiz on on in started off. We've very relaxed oriented. When i first got into my licensing working behind the chair i mentioned before chris rock came out with this movie. Good good hair. Hair hair yeah around that time. I don't know the i don't remember year. But around that time people were shift into natural so That is kinda where it kinda shifted. Because there was a good even point from the beginning of when i started at central state up until that era it was. It was a lot of quick weeds. we always Ponytails up dudes had that shift in now. I have a total opposite shift. I don't do any relaxes. I do pretty much everything natural if somebody does have a relaxed look in his with a smoothing system that because i know we talked about their off air. So what exactly is the smoothing. Smoothing system is a phone of me no assets that you've been placed on the hair and after you clarify the here. We just want to lift up the first layer of hair to let anything you want to. The positive wants to that layer of their. Which is going to smooth it out now. The smoothing system gets deposited onto the hair. Is you. don't blow dry through that kind of seals it but then you flat on in that completely seals it and it keeps your hair elongated for at least ten to thirteen weeks. You who has a tight curl pattern. It loosens up person's call pattern as somebody who would have kinky or corsair. It was the but when they go shampoo here they will still have curl pattern with somebody who has Crawley to wavy hair than that process. Probably would knock their growth pattern out of heat with do so right now. I'm in a stage. Where just about all. My clientele is natural. A lot of my clientele have snapped issues. So under the airing of pair on due to medication life right so it's done even ship for me. I don't do too many lots of styles but then again. I don't have a younger clientele. Either i do know that the younger girls to me. It seems like they're wearing weeks right. So how do you So talking about You know the different stressors and everything that goes into our heart hair. What do you got. What your ladies opinion of how we can maintain it. I'm not talking about good here. Good here is healthy here. So what are your thoughts in how we can You know reverse. You know you can't get rid of stress too much. But i mean what things can. We do to kind of take care of our hair. I just told my client the day. I said drink water. Drink to me. What i learned over the years in what i've learned in education is not necessarily that is stressed that takes your hair out stress positive to other things makes your blood flow go to other parts of your oregon versus supplying the nutrients for your hair. So i tell my clients if you're gonna stress everybody's gonna stress for drink more water when you right is still eat vegetables when you stress. Because what happens. Is we stress. We don't drink water. we don't eat right. We don't get the proper amount of sleep which makes your heart comp harder so thrown off and so then when it's throwing your organs off you bless applies. Wanna go to those organs to help the organs before he helps your hair so if we could just stress and still eat rice water you know. That's that's the only really loosen that i would have because life is stressful in the world that we live in now it's stressful and you almost have to just always wusa and keep your actually in a certain place. Whatever place that may be. That's gonna keep you calm on inside because outside of hair you don't watch august messed up right you know. You always throw a wig on but you. Everybody can't get a kidney transplant. The most important is your health. So health is is and i think lauren has Has something of that. That can actually. I know that we were talking. That she has some things that's going on with her as far as Helping us to take care of ourselves. internally so that that's something that i definitely wanna talk about. How before the end. Because i wanna make sure that everybody gets the information about what she's doing. So let's talk about. Social issues is regards to our hair Have you had clients that wanted to. I don't want to say altered their hair pattern. Well i'll say yeah alter their hair pattern. In order to look achieve a certain look in order to become marketable in the workplace as anybody experience you know clients coming in to say have that type of issue. Oh yes i have. Yeah oh yeah. I've lacks natural Up top years eight minutes like i. Don't wanna look nappy nappy at work. Because i think things are you know they try to fire. Find it you know trying to encourage in. It's it can be down. Yeah you try to encourage them like you know. Hey we'd have nappy hair. You know you have curly hair. You try to correct that language. But he knows his still exists in. There is still lot as doesn't even alluded you know. There's even a certain a certain age group. That has a certain stigma towards natural natural. Looks still don't they still haven't fully embraced right. You know the the the reclaiming of that part of us and they still struggle with the societal views that are That are still kind of in place in some areas. And what i see with that type of personality is different industries. That personality is usually the core. But i really liked. I'm sorry ryan or more professional. Yeah is is usually to was asking devon like more professional Clients go worry. More professional rose more traditional roles. Yeah you're winds who are Mortgage service can say like people who for government agencies. Well yeah but they're not always government when his corporate it's just a certain sectors of industry but it service industries are more flexible with their hair again on the flip side. You have some people are going into the office every day. Who don't have that issue a work with predominant it culture there like for my My ladies who work at ups like she's in the admin side but she's able to wear her hair in two braids or kinky twist or lots or all of that. But i have a lady who works downtown at the state house won't seek even if she's wearing a weed it needs to be straight arap. I call a plain jane paula. Just straight rap. Just let me be clean cut. So but i will say a lot of people now are in. Columbus are switching over and it is less heat even with the smooth insists. My smoothing system. Doesn't move like that on. When it was issued with kids for their hair their hair but in my older age they're really okay and embracing their natural look. And it's good that i have a different variety of different here that i do hone into what they life. Just swear okay. Now it's sayid that. As far as columbus and cleveland. 'cause i lived in columbus. I think personally me personally. I think they're a little more progressive in a way in some ways than up here north northeastern. What do you think. Warren i mean. Do you think it's or or is it the saying what. What's your opinion. I think when we started out our hope venture. That was a huge topic of conversation. Because yeah here. Books from cleveland. Rhianna was from day devon was in columbus and then we had our people in chicago detroit so it was always. You could find those pockets but we all know that. Cleveland was more progressive when came to the stalin and do nobody as a cleveland native. You felt like it's just. it's more options in columbus. Saw the difference. And i'm sorry. Go ahead being down there like you said you get to find out more about those specialized foulest in cleveland is seen more more nici and more private more rice mall but you had those key players that you knew they were in large magazines Me orion always laugh as we will be collected horizon magazines get inspiration from styles so it was just a whole coacher in cleveland to me. That made it more progressive. They photos symbian in magazine spreads than at the club and in the salon that were going on in colombia at the time columbus was too conservative. I really maybe. What is in their losses. I've lived in columbus. Oh baby you know you guys know at back way back in the day. so so i know lauren. You have mentioned something about you. have you. Guys had a excuse me a unique style of your lawn. I'm talking about that as far as we chat like a salon bar or something. Okay so we were doing pop up shops so an effort to support small business on nurse like ourselves. Were trying to transition from corporate america Too so entrepreneurship. Support those creative minds. because we will meet so many one demonstrator that did not want to change their hair or their attitude or or shape for their job and they weren't and make candles and body oils in scrubs in this and that so we provide a space without having to need a brick and mortar location to these people to show up show out so it was a place to bring extra foot traffic for that business because those individuals with the insurance with their people and we always had a small boutique space set up in private sweet so it always helps us generate more customers for our personal business. Just the ultimate way to build community. That's my mission and vision in life is just to build a successful community exactly and you and you ladies from the you know jump. You know it's all about collaborating in you know and sharing whatever information you have you share it. You allow other small businesses like you said to come in. You know one of things that i. It's my pet peeve as us as african americans we were mike hoarders. We don't want a bearer kreider right that crabs in a bucket mentality. And you know. I'm not about that. I think never ever. We wouldn't surround ourselves around on people right right. So let's talk about what you guys are. One of our favorite saying is going to let you go ahead and be great. You're you go there. You go on the t shirt right there with an expert witness literally. You know because you don't do you doing couch those personalities. When you're trying to be communal who are. Like why would i. And what can you offer me. And what are we going to get in if you can you give me. And he's like. Hey we're giving you a platform we're giving you a space but if you feel like you're you're better on your own. Go ahead be great. We will celebrate still always been a blessing in our in our weekly like that's been a blessing of karma for us too because they are you know we're like hey it's it's you don't argue over bred in the bread aisle dewey so brazen we're said every mouth for everybody right interesting point because all right let me go into. This must've do any of our clients Do they kinda ask for a discount. I mean okay. Can you hook me up. You know you know insist this time of or okay. But i'll key part in saying no. Is we establish those boundaries. In the beginning it was that type of situation even we made it so that it was affordable. We work with people so it was never an issue of. I want this. But i can't achieve it or do you down. No right silent actually. You're coming here for that inaugural even without much more. I i will say that has never been an issue and in my my issue is now. I'll have clients who might not be able to afford it and they'll just would have been come into me for years instead of san having. Can i played some lau. In some later they just wanted do it at all. I find myself calling them like. Hey we been like well. I'm like girl we can make something work for me. Like i had a lady. She's been support me for thirteen years. And she ended up losing her job with the pandemic and then had surgery. So i called her and i was like no work. Something out to me. For ten years.

You know on my website in whatever you want me to put on their out definitely put on there so it can link to the right To the right. Page two thousand and one when i asked detriment like what's gonna be our mission and our vision and it was here comes and goes but it's the miss forever. Oh wow love it. Love it so paper now okay my fortune. Who should forgotten. I feel bad for forgetting it. But it was everybody's grandpa on this old screen. His name was clinched and he was long so That shampoo is called quench my curls and what is or is specifically for people with dense hair and is one of have kinky and corsair on income is a moisturizing cleansing shampoo. That's gonna help get both one So those are my shampoos. I have a conditioner call. Lily as conditioner is a A good basic moisturizing conditioner than i have juniors tea tree conditioner which is a conditioner. That has tea. Tree peppermint menthol A lemongrass in apple cider vinegar. Okay can you just feel the sensation through. I know some run outside. My hair will pay good money for scout massage. Debbie believe i will be on the website and and being in by I have one bestseller conditioner but this is a conditioner that it does a multitude of things it is called queen elizabeth's and queen elizabeth's conditioner is a hot oil treatment. A condition deep conditioner in one All the other day. I discovered that was already good for the timely and everything of anybody's texture originated with most of my shampoos but the other day my stepdaughter auto is a good idea to go swimming with her afro in just out and she has kinky curly hair hunting grades out and she went. Undrafted applauded slammed the litter this so when i saw her again she added here in a pony tail. But hair's locked. So i gave a speech like you know getting ready to start over saw prepare. Your mind is oh cases hairs on grow back but this is a fall out. I'm going to have to calmness as tear it up. So then i went to the back upright and i said lord helping we help me help me so some state use the queen elizabeth conditioner yard and i was able to come to her hair as she didn't even hardly lose any here. She didn't even lose as much here as she should have. Lost for having those crochet for five and a half weeks issue. And i think that's an important to highlight because it's something i wanted to mention earlier. We were going through a whole cultural shift where black women were working now or feared workout. As they're here was bright. Yes especially those relaxes you have. She's always been a huge of out before water hits it and i don't know that so more right instead a wedding some hair that has not been de tango The whole different issue so conditioner. 'cause i'm i'm horrible. Tell you right now. I do not do anything with hair. But i put the conditioner on after not coming out. My natural kiki curly tight curl pattern hair. Right grew it. Yeah okay so that that. That's a temp in so in order to detangle use conditioner i before in us or you don't want your here okay. So let me say this. You can't now would wants to do depending on how tight in brittle you're here is you do wanna comb your hair out. I but her. With matting or or rabat tangles gives you have a spray bottle water and you lightly smith's the hair and then you can get on there. You just don't want to saturate the here and let the person go because here gonna draw up to his natural natural state in if it's always going to be more mad so can't water you just wanna use a spray bottle you don't wanna dow The sink or anything like that as you can use water in the conditioner. Also use the conditioner for curly hair week because when you deal with commercial hair whether it's the hair off of somebody's in a temple or whether it's not a usair hair store curly hair always tangles mask and this keeps it from doing that. And it doesn't matter what grade. It is so i would say this is my best seller of the whole line Outside of that only have two more products which is a moose government on the other day.
